Four significant decades for contemporary Chinese art

From Revolution to Globalisation surveys the cultural dynamism of contemporary China from the early 1970s to the present. China’s open-door policy of 1978 began an era of profound social and economic change. Cities across the country grew into global commercial centres affecting the everyday lives of millions of people. Amid China’s rise on the world stage, artists sought to engage in international conversations about art with their contemporaries. Challenging traditional ideas and art practices, they staged their own exhibitions and experimented with new mediums and unconventional styles. From Revolution to Globalisation looks at how international audiences have come to understand China today and captures the bold generation of artists who defined the contemporary Chinese experience.
